Charleston Insider's Guide > Restaurants & Dining > Southern Cuisine

Many of Charleston's restaurants are famous for their unique cuisine, a blend of French and Spanish influences with deep southern roots and a bit of a creole flair, punctuated by an abundance of fresh seafood. Fried green tomatoes, frogmore stew, and shrimp and grits are just a few of the things you will be sure to find at these restaurants. This type of dining experience is truly unique to Charleston because of the many cultural influences that affect the region. Lowcountry, French, and African influences are especially prevalent. Only in New Orleans will you find a cuisine as diverse as the one in Charleston. Our list of recommended southern style restaurants are sure to please. We highly suggest to first time visitors in this region to experience the very best in Southern cooking.
